Bookworks presents our monthly local author fair. New Mexico is full of creative people; come see what your neighbors have been writing!
 
Trish Porter: Rekindle Your Dreams($12.99). Today's women are discovering they want to fulfill their dreams, in addition to raising a family or after theirchildren leave home. In this book, Trish Porter encourages and shows busy women how to live their dream, even if they think it is too late or they can't find the time. Provided in her book are the tools to successfully pursue your passion. 

Cathy Strisik: Thousand Cricket Song($14.95). This book of poetry is a work of insight and vibrancy, rendering Cambodia's "mottled beauty" with compassion, outrage, and lush sensory detail - John Nichols calls it a "moving portrait of a land, its people, and the universal human spirit."

Jean MacPhail: A Spiral Life ($23.99). This personal memoir covers the first forty years of the author's life, divided into two "turns of the spiral." It explores MacPhail's familial struggles and education in medical school, and her move to America to start a new, intensely spiritual life.

Keith Pyeatt: Struck($19.95). When lightning strikes Barry as he hikes among Chaco Canyon's ancient petroglyphs in Albuquerque, it's more than an accident of nature: it's a calling. Earth's fate is now tied to Barry's, and Barry's destiny is linked to the past.

Sandra Smith: From Beneath The Olive Tree($14.95). Regret, guilt and anguish are negative emotions that can block our happiness and spiritual growth. This book begins as one practitioner's own journey through many lifetimes as a path to physical healing, and evolves into a step-by-step process that can benefit all of us.
